. this is "your money." the elections are over. the american people have spoken. now it's time for washington to get to work. >> you elected us to focus on your jobs, not ours. >> that's because nothing is more important to our economic recovery than creating jobs. president obama says he'll add 12 million jobs over the next four years. but for his math to work, the pace of economic growth needs to pick up. with a crisis in europe and a slowdown in asia, an economic storm beyond our control stands ready to batter our shores. still, two years of consistent job growth prove we are heading in the right direction, but the fiscal cliff is one storm that will be of our own making unless washington acts. $7 trillion in across-the-board tax hikes and spending cuts over the next decade mandated to begin in january. it's the legislative equivalent of a slow motion train wreck that washington can avoid. the question? will congress and the president drive that train over a cliff? >> we won't solve the problem of our fiscal imbalance overnight. >> the elections are over. the threats to our economy are not
>>> this morning on "meet the press" -- an unfolding scandal in washington. and a new battle over the fiscal cliff. the election celebration is short-lived. a surprise resignation by cia director david petraeus comes days before congressional hearings over the attack on th u.s. consulate in benghazi. we'll get reaction this morning from capitol hill and the very latest reporting on this developing story from our chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell, who broke the story friday afternoon. also the president and republicans get set to negotiate new taxes and spending cuts. is a breakthrough possible? >> i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. we've debated over and over again. and on tuesday night we found out that the majority of americans agree with my approach. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans but as americans. now, we want you to lead. >> where does it all go from sneer we'll ask democratic senator from new york chuck schumer and republican senator from oklahoma tom coburn. also we check in with cn
for washington to get in gear. do something about it. this fiscal cliff business could affect just about every single one of us, and you can bet there's plenty going on behind the scenes. this past hour we heard from the president in the east room of the white house basically announcing he's inviting leaders from both houses of congress and from both political parties to meet with him at the white house next friday. just a couple of minutes ago, we heard the president say he's open to compromise and open to new ideas, but there's one point the president is sticking to -- higher taxes for people making higher incomes. take a listen. >> i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. i'm not going to ask students and seniors and middle-class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me, making over $250,000 aren't a asked to pay a dime more in taxes. >> two hours before we saw the president, we saw the house speaker, republican, john boehner, said quote, everything on the revenue side and on the sp spending side has to be looked at but when it comes to specifics he put the b
people here in washington are calling the fiscal cliff. today, we have new proof that people across the country not only are aware of what's going on, they're very, very worried. our new poll shows 68% say the country will face either a crisis or major problems if the cuts in taxes aren't avoided. and a whopping 77% say their personal financial situation will be affected by a failure to solve the fiscal cliff problem. despite this nationwide sense of urgency, there's only a little talk of compromise right now as lawmakers return to washington. our congressional correspondent, kate bolduan, has been working her sources on capitol hill and what's going on. stakes are enormous right now. what's going on? >> they were away for a week. staff was supposed to be working. but lawmakers are arriving back in town with no real whisper of an imminent breakthrough at the moment to avoid this looming series of tax increases and spending cuts that could very well damage the economy. but the air of compromise among some notable republicans is definitely grabbing attention. the republicans' comments
on the dysfunction in washington that americans say they hate. many think they went to bed to fix that. keeping them honest, not so fast. in seven weeks, the bush tax cuts expire, automatic spending cuts kick in. it's being called a fiscal cliff and even though it's more like the fiscal steep slope, heading down it it could do bad things to the economy. rolling down it, falling off it, have made markets nervous and credit rating agencies and economists of all stripes are warning about the consequences of not harming out a deal in time. politicians have been sending out mixed signals since the election. on the one hand, they are talking about common ground. take a look. >> we want our children to live in an america that isn't burdened by debt, isn't weakened by inequality. that isn't threatened by the disruptive power of a warming planet. >> the nation as you know is at a critical point. at a time like this, we can't risk partisan bickering and political posturing. >> if there is a mandate in yesterday's results, it's a mandate for to us find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges
is live from washington this morning. very nice to see you, mark. so the house is back in session today, and so far there are no talks scheduled between top republicans and the president, we understand. >> no, that's true, zoraida. in fact we haven't seen the congressional leadership and president obama meet since november 16th. now there were staff discussions over the thanksgiving holiday. they don't seem to be as productive as some people had hoped, as you said, we are now 35 days until the fiscal cliff. what we do know, though, is that president obama did reach out to house speaker john boehner. he is the republican, the senate majority leader harry reid the democrat over the weekend, perhaps to try to jump-start the talks. as of now, as the house of representatives comes back today, as the senate came back yesterday, we're still very much in limbo on the fiscal cliff. >> here's something else we know. some major republicans have come out and they say that they don't feel bound by the americans for tax reform pledge. most recently we saw house majority leader eric cantor. do you bel

went to bed election night thinking they voted to fix the problems in washington, particularly on capitol hill. keeping them honest, though, not so fast. speed really matters here. in just seven weeks, the bush tax cuts expire and automatic spending cuts agreed to by both parties kick in. it's called the fiscal cliff. no doubt you know about it and even though it's more like the fiscal kind of steep slope heading down it could have some very bad implications for the economy. concerns about rolling down it or falling off it or whatever you want to call it have already made markets nervous and credit rating agencies and economists of all stripes are warning about the consequences of not hammering out a deal in time. politicians in both parties, well, they have been sending out mixed signals ever since the election. on the one hand, they're talking about common ground. take a look. >> we want our children to live in an america that isn't burdened by debt, that isn't weakened by inequality, that isn't threatened by the disruptive power of a warming planet. >> the nation as you know

to make his case for the possibility of higher taxes ahead. our washington correspondent, john harwood, is here with the very latest. hi, john. >> reporter: hi, tyler. you know, everybody is staking out public positions and trying to drive public opinion their way. the president's been doing that all week. he is doing that with his meeting at 2:30 this afternoon with small business leaders from around the country. he is later going to travel to pennsylvania to make his case publicly, part of what he is saying is that if you adopt his plan on the extension of the bush tax cuts that is for the middle class and not for people at the top that almost every small business owner is going to get a tax cut as a result of that. and republicans are staking out their own position that tax revenue can go up but not tax rates. once they get into the room and the hard bargaining which of the positions ultimately falls away. the signs remain positive, tyler, we will get a deal by the end of the year. >> the president just half of the equation. congress is the other half. and many of those members, all

you think the tone in washington has been over the last four years, no matter how childishly you think a lot of lawmakers have acted on a structural level, who controls what, there may be less change than meets the eye which is why what you'll be hearing in washington in the coming weeks may sound less like this -- >> everything doesn't have to be a fight. everything doesn't have to be a fight. >> -- and more like this. more like each side getting ready for an epic fight. >> i do not think we should be raising taxes, especially when the country is on the brink of a recession. >> can you have a compromise? >> yes. >> that was a gasp before you said yes. that scares me. >> i will spend every moment in the senate working to help lead the effort to stop that. >> another round of tax breaks for very wealthy people will somehow trickle down. we know that doesn't work. >> the president wants to raise taxes. raise taxes on the wealthiest 2% of americans. my principle would be mr. president, we're not going to help you to get that done. >> olympia snowe is the outgoing republican senator from m

jones has more now from washington. >> it's time to get back to work. >> reporter: with the election in the rearview mirror, the focus in washington is back on efforts to avoid the economically devastating fiscal cliff. >> if we just go over the cliff and let those policies stay in effect, we're basically going to undo the recovery. metro party really wants to be blamed for that. >> reporter: the cliff amounts to $7 trillion in spending cuts and tax increases over the next decade. the threat of these painful cuts set to begin on january 1st is part of a deal congress and the president made last year to force them to agree on a long-term deficit reduction plan. >> this is a scenario that congress has said if we don't act, we're going to shoot ours. >> reporter: so far that long-term plan hasn't materialized. the biggest chunk of the cliff, the bush tax cuts. they're also a big sticking point. democrats say cuts for families making $250,000 or more must end. >> we're serious about reducing the deficit. we have to combine spending cuts with revenue, and that means asking the wealthiest
damage that america could do itself if washington allows us to go over the fiscal cliff. according to studies, the average household could pay $3500 more in taxes. unemployment in the u.s. which has come down to 7.9% could head back up above 9% by this time next year. the u.s. could join europe which has been hit by a double dip recession. and according to a pugh research/"washington post" poll, you clearly understand the danger of this fiscal cliff. 68% say it will have a major effect on the economy. 21% say just a minor infect. only 2% say no effect. 10% say they don't know which is why you're watching this right now. president obama's solution to all this is to make a deal centered around increasing taxes on the wealthy which will go a good part of the way to raising the $1.6 trillion in new revenue that he wants to raise over the next decade in his attempt to reduce the federal deficit. he wants to let the bush era tax cuts expire. if that happens, the top tax rate on income would jump from 36% to 39%. he likes to say that's where it was during the clinton years. the second top
